Gunman in Pentagon Metro Shooting dies


WASHINGTON (AP) -- The gunman who wounded two police officers at the subway entrance to the Pentagon has died.

The head of Pentagon police says the suspect calmly pulled a weapon from his pocket and started firing. The officers suffered grazing wounds in an exchange of gunfire that mortally wounded the shooter.

Law enforcement officials have identified the dead suspect as John Patrick Bedell. They're trying to determine if a second person may have been involved.

Since 9/11, subway passengers have not been able to directly enter the Pentagon.
